If you follow along on my instagram stories then you saw that Zachary and I took a trip down to the Ellenton Premium Outlets a week or so ago on a drizzly Sunday afternoon to do some shopping. We went into J. Crew Factory, kate spade, Under Armour, GAP, and the Nike store! We had an entire afternoon to kill and spent it walking around the outlets which are open air unlike a normal mall which I really enjoyed! If you’re local to the Tampa Bay area then I’ll add that beginning Friday, August 4 through Sunday, August 6th is tax free weekend in Florida which means most clothing, footwear and certain accessories selling for $60 or less per item will be tax-free at the Ellenton Premium Outlets.
Back to the main event, the first stop we made was into the J. Crew Factory store where I tried on basically the entire store… For my out of state readers I’ve linked the products below the images, but if you’re local then you can find everything I’m wearing at Ellenton Premium Outlets!

Zachary even found some things he likes here. His favorite were these embroidered anchor shorts (under $20)! Keep reading to the end of the post to see what clothes I bought from J. Crew Factory at Ellenton Premium Outlets!
Our next stop was the kate spade story which was like purse heaven for me since I carry these bags all the time, but that day I was on the hunt for a new bag. I’ve been consciously expanding my collection with the basic shapes and colors. I was surprisingly missing a navy bag from my collection, which is surprising because it’s my favorite color. I saw so many gorgeous bags in the store it was so hard to choose.

I tried on some of their clothing items too and was obsessed with this black and white dress!!
I asked which ones he liked best to help me narrow down my purse search. Z picked out these two bags as his top contenders for me… I ended up getting one of them in navy (if you scroll to the end you can see)!
Next we popped into GAP where I found a ton of great business casual wear for work. They had great blouses and fun dress pants perfect for summer. I loved this knit tank top I found there too!
And if you’re in the market for a cardigan they had so many great ones!We went into Under Armour to check out their selection. I found some awesome athleisure wear! Zach found a dry fit polo (comes in a ton of colors) he LOVED and some shorts he’d be hunting for that are great for summer! He ended up getting both! I have been wanting a pair of Nike Free Run sneakers for the LONGEST time! I finally bought a pair after spending 45 minutes narrowing down my colors (I couldn’t decide between neon or black/gray).
All in all it was a success! I have only been to a few outlet malls in my day, all of which are in New England. Both Zachary and I were pleasantly surprised with how much of a discount you actually get on stuff!
